  1. Well I had been playing with BdAc for quite sometime and I thought if we could spawn military vehicles with their engines on ,we could simply have a military campaign. So can anyone help me here? PS. Don't be rude like steam. I've been an explorer for a 2yr now n now I wish military expeditions.

  3. I'm having problems with the KAX engines. There is no sound, nor a spinning texture when I activate it (thrust still works). I'm using KSP 1.1.3, and the latest 1.1.2 version of the mod. Let me know if I'm missing any info.
  4. Just a noob question: Is KAX included in CKAN, or is there another way for me to enable it through CKAN? Thanks
  5. K-256 SeaWolf. I took my inspiration for this project from a model sub that i have sitting on my shelf, i also remembered reading about @pTrevTrevs sub experiments, and how people where saying that shuffling ore is just inconvinient, and that how he said that MK-3 tanks are too damn boyant to allow he's U-boat to dive. And i kinda already promised long ago that i would make a sub for the KNS fleet. So, could i make it one better, could i make something that looks like a U-boat, and something that works using only WASD controls. And so i did. It took me about a whole day to make something that nearly worked. It did dive, but only with the nose pointing straight toward the bottom pf the ocean. I taught that it's not really gonna get better than that, so i gave up on the project for a while. But, because i really wanted it to work, i picked it up yesterday evening and finished the job. And here we have the finished product. To make it dive, all you need to do is: 1. Put your engines on full. 2. Then it's just smooth sailing using nothing but airplane controls. It will take some time for the nose to sink at first (push the nose down hard), but when your underwater, it's very smooth, responsive and easy to use (little taps are enough to make it change attitude). It does have quite a slow turn-rate tough (subs don't have bow engines so...yea). And yes, it really is as simple as flying a plane using this thing. Now let's look at what the thing looks like. Now that you've seen that the thing actually works, Now let's show you what it looks like from the inside. Now let's take a look at some other important facts: Since i didn't want endless headaches, nor any balancing issues, i didn't try to make any torpedoes for this one. Instead, i put two howitzers on the nose, to act as the subs main striking force. One important thing about subs is ofcource the range, and speed. Well it's not that great. Under water, it has a top speed of about 11 m/s, and a range of about 16 minutes at full thrust. So yea, If you wanna actually go somewhere hidden from view, put infinite fuel on and lot's of coffee, since it's gonna take a while. I already tested that you can drive this into the water from the KSC runway. But be careful, it's very prone to falling on it's side when on land. If you want to get that famous shot of the periscope poking out of the water, well, im sorry to say that it's not possible. Basically, if you go arrow straight underwater, you will slowly rise to the surface. Specks: Top speed: -Above water: about 20 m/s. -Under water: about 11 m/s. Range: bout 16 minutes worth of fuel at full thrust. Armament: 2 howitzers and 4 chainguns. Length: 45.9m. Width: 9.0m. Height: 12.8m. Mass: 587.587 tons. Parts: 554. Mods used: KAX (engines removed from the downloadable version) and BD-armory. Download link: SeaWolf.craft?dl=0 And there it is pretty much, a nice little sub for all your silent hunting needs. I hope you enjoy it .
  6. I have been using version 1.1.3 of the game, and the newest KAX version (assumed to be 1.1.2). Propellers fail to move in the animations, and thrust direction is unavailable. The engines will work, but lack the aforementioned details. I have deleted the entire mod before, and the Firespitter .dll. Reinstall, same issue as before. Are there any known mod incombalities that could prevent KAX from working? Or is it just in need of an update? I have been wanting to do the King of the Hill challenge, but non working propellers won't allow me submit a craft.
  7. So, we've seen the amazing UH-1 replica by @Redshift OTF and the equally amazing AH-1 replica from @pTrevTrevs. Now it's my turn to bring you something from that era, the Chinook, my all time favorite helicopter next to the UH-1 Huey. Little bit of history: The Boeing-Vertol developed CH-47 Chinook was created to replace the USAF's fleet of CH-37 Mojave helicopters. It was developed as a twin-rotor heavy-lift helicopter, but has been used as a gunship, and even as a passenger helicopter by the British Airways. It's main task is to airlift troops, supplies, light vehicles and field guns to the front lines. The Chinook was put into service in the early 1960s and is still operational today witch proves that it is the perfect tool for the job. Due to this, It has been operated by 16 different countries, and has found use in the Vietnam war, Operation Desert Storm and the Falkland wars, witch is quite a service record. As mentioned above, it has also found use as a Passenger helicopter under British Airways and Helifor among others. On with the KSP version: Instead of trying to make it a 1:1 size replica, i made more of a Kerbal scale one, using a little Metal Earth model of it as reference. As usual, the build/testing phase took me something like 3-4 hours, but that's mainly because i had a pretty good idea on how to build the Chinook. Even the cockpit was pretty easy to put together, tough a lot of tweaking was involved. (i moved the landing-gears into their correct positions after those test-flights). The Chinook is very easy to fly, witch came to me as a complete surprise. I think it's mostly due to me using a lot of hidden and not so hidden control surfaces. WARNING: The Chinook can run out of intake air at totally random times (propably caused by sharp maneuvers), this may...ehm...slightly affect the way the chopper handles. So, don't fly too low while doing sharp maneuvers or you might crash. Originally it had only two rotors, and it flew fine, but to give it a chance of actually being able to lift something (need KAS for that), i gave it four instead. But as a minus, the range is halved. It could have been around 50 km but now it's only 25 km. Top speed: 40 m/s in level flight. Range: 25 km with the current fuel load of 568/922. More can be loaded if needed. Lifting capacity: 13-15 tons of cargo: Length: 19.5m. Width: 11.7m. Height: 5.4m Mass: 20 tons. Parts: 249. Mod used: KAX. Download link: Chinook (KSP).craft?dl=0 So there it is for you, the mighty Chinook in KSP. i hope you enjoy it .
  8. This is the repository where i will be posting all my future navy aircrafts/helicopters. These are the aircrafts that protect our fleets on the open seas. And are the ones that operate from our carriers. Listing in here will work the same way as in the main post: Info about this post: Unfortunetly due to spoilers being a little broken (albums don't work), i won't be using them, so this could get quite long. (don't want to have a wall of 10 or so picks). Doing separate post for each aircrafts (new ones) like i have done for my new ships will propably end up being the way to go. But the problem is, that i usually make a bunch of aircrafts in one go, so making something like 4-5 separate posts at once, seem very very dumb. Also, if i put them on the comments, i can't categorise them, Darn. I'll figure out something. List of aircrafts: Alright, i figured it would be best for me to just put my new planes on the comment section. So, here is the LEGEND that i have been using on my aircrafts for a while now. All the crafts will be put under these categories. I will include all the info under about the crafts under their own categories and a single pick. All the albums will be in a random order and won't be inside any spoilers. Here are all the Categories. New ones may be added in the future and some may end up being unused for this project. KF (Kerbal fighter). (includes Carrier, Land and Sea based aircrafts). KLB (Kerbal light bomber). KMB (Kerbal medium bomber). KHB (Kerbal Heavy bomber). KG (Kerbal Gunship). (C-130 Spooky style plane gunships fall under this name). KAH (Kerbal armed helicopter). KSH (Kerbal ship/sub hunter). (Didn't want to use Kerbal seaplane since it would have been KSP). (Also works for non seaplane ship hunters). KRP (kerbal reconnaissance plane). KTP (Kerbal Transport plane). Albums: They will just be slapped here on a mostly random order. There will be many MANY more aircrafts to come, so stay tune. And there you have it, an ever growing list of naval/carrier aircrafts. I hope you enjoy them . PS. I really do hope they get around into fixing the problem with albums not working inside spoilers, since it's not the best solution to have all the albums like they are right now.
  9. I am trying to find a kax parts pack that had a very long turboprop engine. The name has slipped me can anyone help? thanks
  10. I've had this for quite a while now, tinkering with it, and now that I know people actually like my work sometimes, I decided to share my best "working" helicopter! The descriptions between the civilian and the military version are the same, sorry. The performance is quite good, and it'll respond well in almost all situations. Jeb likes to blind bill with the spotlight by the way, make sure you keep him away from the brightness controls. No pics of the military one, the only difference is that it has a real FLIR camera, wing mounted chain guns and hellfire missile pods, and additional engines. Be careful. Look for the action groups.
  11. This year while all the staff are away from the KSC on holiday Jeb decided to host a race, but this race is unlike anything anyone would ever approve of, requiring small nimble aircraft to get in between all of the narrowest corridors between the KSC buildings. This challenge is inspired by 1930's air races and modern drone racing and is a combination of the two, with tight drone racing style corridors but with an emphasis on improving aerodynamic design rather than the rather crude bricks which constitute drones. Each race is a single lap around the course starting at the runway, pilots then guide their craft as fast as possible over the SPH, as close to the tower as possible. The second marker is the launch pad water tower, each pilot must pass to the right of the water tower and head to the east side of the runway which is the third mark. Rounding the third mark, the next mark is the cylindrical fuel container with the blue stripe which is between mission control and the VAB. The player then continues through the corridor past the administrative building and makes a left turn around the R&D complex and flies behind the VAB avoiding obstacles. The course ends when you cross the midpoint of the runway. Record your time at this point and land safely for a valid entry. This is the course, the red outlines the boundaries of gates with reference to buildings. The Rules: 1) Ferram Aerospace Research is necessary 2) Passing under gates is necessary, flying above the highest point of a structure is considered passing over a gate 3) You must add 5 seconds to your time every time you pass over a gate 4) One should consider an entry invalid if the course is not followed (cutting inside a gate, flying over corridors) 5) Your power plant of choice will be included on the leaderboard, I hope to see some interesting choices 6) Flying above the VAB while racing renders the result invalid. 7) And I almost forgot, absolutely no torque reaction wheels or cockpit torque! Suggestions: 1) Wings may be helpful 2) The aircraft/rocket should not be wider than a corridor 3) Stay subsonic, this challenge is all about cornering, precision and speed is last in terms of concerns 4) you need about 1 minute and 30 seconds of fuel, no more is necessary.
